I'd forgotten about "Cat in the Rain," but have just read a section of Robert Olen Butler's new writing book From Where You Dream, where he talks about that story in order to illustrate Hemingway's "cinematically sensual way" of directing a scene. Butler's book is wonderful for anyone who writes or teaches writing, and Hemingway's genius in cinematic technique is clarified in a few pages. I guess the woman in "The Short Happy Life..." shows a side of women that I sometimes get into trouble for writing about--from women. Vicki
